You hit it right on the nailPosted: August 29, 2012
I heard this one at a meeting last night. The speaker, a flashy guy in his early 30s or late 20s, was probably mixing “you hit the nail on the head”(got something exactly right) with “you got that right”. It is also possible that he was thinking “right on” when he was speaking but that expression is more familiar to my generation. Malaphors are instantly recognizable but quickly forgotten, so a big “thank you” to my friend Mike (who was sitting next to me) for writing this one down at that moment.
